On my recent weekend in Raglan I picked up an interesting leaflet about a historical walk around the Raglan township. It mentioned the war memorial's unveiling on April 29th 1922 by the Governor-General, Viscount Jellicoe and his wife. At the time of the unveiling Lady Jellicoe commented on how lovely the temporary palms looked. As a result the following year the town committee decided they should be a permanent feature. Some of them still stand today. The memorial has 22 dead recorded on it. I love the position of the Raglan memorial right in the heart of the town.
